  1. Hello, Has anyone on here ever had a field trip or large group use Metra? If yes how was it? Today I was taking the 12:35 out of Ogilvie home from work,and a group of School Kids from Kenosha returning from a field trip came on and were allowed to ride in a closed off car. Thank you

    Last TMC RTS

    As of last month it was ten years since the TMC's were retired for good. Thoughts?
  5. Has any Metra, BNSF, or UP conductor had to turn a passenger into the RAILROAD Police upon arrival at a downtown station? I bring this up because during lolla someone was playing on the tracks in front of the Wilmette Depot and they tried to deny him boarding but he managed to slip on. The train called UP commuter control and after giving a description of the offender they requested to have a special agent meet the train downtown. Is this a common practice? Thanks.
  6. Not an online scanner, an actual radio scanner and i don't stream it online.
  7. Good evening, Been listing to CTA rail channels and I have wondered what on sight operations are? Rail control puts out this announcement every time work is being done on the tracks a major event is letting out at Wrigley, what is on sight operations? Thanks.

    So Kedzie still had TMC'S after it got Flex's? When did Kedzie get rid of the renaming TMC'S?

    Look at this , two things that are long gone. By the way was Kedzie or Chicago running the 20 Madison bus at this time? Did Chicago have any TMC's? Thanks
  12. I think it might be a hold over from the WIL-bus days, there has always been a bus shuttle for as long as I remember.
  13. Nice, and just like I mentioned in another thread the run numbers had a 5 and 3 other numbers wonder if this has to do with operators working OT? Glad you enjoined it, I remember growing up in Wilmette and ridding the old Orion's to Gilson. Have a good night and Happy Independence day!!
  14. Or the Ravinia buses that have the bus number in the run box.
